Fat, hepatic triglyceride and cholesterol contents in C57B6 mice fed different diets. Epididymal fat in C57B6 mice fed for 8 weeks with high-palm oil (high-PO), high-safflower oil (high-FO) or high-soy oil (high-SO) diets with or without KAA fortification was determined at the end of the study (upper panel). Liver samples were obtained from C57B6 mice fed for 8 weeks with the LFD or the varying HFD with or without KAA fortification. Hepatic TG and cholesterol were enzymatically determined as described in the Materials and methods section (middle and bottom panels). All values are expressed as means±s.e.m. (n=6 for each group). *P<0.05 for all HFD control groups as compared with the LFD group or as indicated.
